Smithfield Cemetery was also known as Dunkin Cemetery. William Dunkin was one of the original proprietors of Smithfield. The cemetery is located off of County Road 625 East north of County Road 170 South. Smithfield Cemetery is listed on the 1887 Smithfield town Plat in Block 1 Lot 1.

Travel Indiana State Road 32 East to County Road 600 East, turn right and travel south to County Road 138 South. Turn left and travel east to County Road 625 East. Turn right and travel south into Smithfield. The cemetery is on the east side of County Road 625 before you come to the T intersection of County Road 170 South. (The last driveway on the left, before the intersection will take you back to the entrance to the cemetery on the north side.) Two Wasson military tombstones were the only visible markers still standing when we visited the cemetery in 2006.
